The percentage game

Inspecting my girl after a recent scene, I traced my fingers gently (and then not quite so gently) along the raised weal made by a rather high whack of the cane.

She’d been playing with someone who’s an uncannily accurate administrator of severe strokes. “Oh well,” I commented, “even the most experienced players have to be allowed the occasional miss.”

This provoked debate, as you can imagine. I’m personally horrified when I lay the odd stroke astray – a little high, a little low, wrapping a little too far round. But it does happen, from time to time. And, of course, every girl has her own definition of ‘accurate’. Woe betide anyone who stripes Haron’s thighs, for example – whereas one dear friend simply loves to receive cane strokes there.

But what’s an “acceptable” ratio? What’s par for the course? Two inaccurate strokes in six of the best would be well and truly out of order: even one stray strike in a half-dozen would feel a little high.

Here’s the thesis, then… The best we could come up with was the ninety per cent rule. That is: unless you’re playing a scene in which the caning is deliberately (and by agreement) wild, at least nine strokes in ten must be entirely accurate. Any views, from either end of the rod?

    That sounds about right to me. This is a co-incidence as I just read elsewhere a story where the master intentionally tawses the back of the girl’s legs. Well that was enough for me. I just stopped reading. So, anything less than 90% would be cause for complaint.

    Abel,I was wondering do you consider spanking a skill that has to be acquired and honed or is it a talent you’re born with?
    Was your first delivery nerve-racking? It must be difficult to achieve the perfect stroke and not inflict too much damage.
    I have heard it said that practise makes perfect,would Haron agree?

    Harriet – LOL much as I would like to claim to be naturally talented… Yes, the first time I caned someone for real was nerve-racking (and a deeply powerful experience both ways). I was incredibly fortunate that it was with someone where the trust and level of caring was mutual. Was I good at it? Put it this way, I’m sure my skill levels have improved considerably with practice!

    That’s our boy!! So adorably modest….and I’d wager that reality is that they don’t come finer…..
